Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

Recommended Posts

I am really satisfied that the Shang-Chi sets are a bit up there in price range, I expected a $20-$30 set at most, but the fact that there are 2 that are priced at $30 and $40 excites me. I just want an arena that has the characters battling for the 10 rings and a brick built Fin Fang Foom. Those sound like solid sets.

About the subject of a D2C, I think a UCS Milano like this one would be rad: https://buildbetterbricks.com/products/custom-lego-ucs-guardians-of-the-galaxy-milano-instructions. I'd pay good money for that. Maybe give Quill and Gamora some arm printing to make the minifigs more exclusive. Anybody else not a huge fan of Lego's interpretation of Star-Lord mask? I would love a new Star-Lord mask, too, but I understand that desire is very unlikely.

That would be cool but I'm not sure how LEGO would look at an idea like that. The Milano has it's fanbase but in the end it's a ship that only appeared in 1-and-a-bit movie and has since been replaced by the Benatar, which is already 3 years ago from a merchandising pov.

Black Widow has been rumored to get another delay. Expect every MCU movie for this year to follow suite, and in turn, the lego sets that accompany them. The only things we can concretely look forward to for the rest of the year are the 18+ sets, the D2C, and the Disney+ sets (plus whatever comic book sets lego decides on)

Even if we do get set pics/info, descriptions for Shang-Chi and Spider-Man 3, they most likely are not coming out any time soon

You're definitely not wrong. It has its fanbase but that might not be enough for it to become an expensive set.

D2C still seems like to be Avengers Tower, it's an iconic aspect of a majority of the first three phases. I think any speculation otherwise needs to consider that this needs to be as iconic/popular as the Helicarrier.

I'm fairly sure the 18+ sets are tied to Sony movies, in particular 'Venom: Let there be Carnage', which is believed to have an R-Rating that might get delayed also potentially pushing back release. The rumored 'Carnage Head/Bust' is believed to be one of the 18+ sets and chances are the other 18+ set is a Venom Head/Bust, as why would'nt they make the protagonist of the movie into a Head/Bust also? If it is keeping its current June 25, 2021 release date then we have some reports that we'll see our first glimpse of the movie on February 7th 2021 during the superbowl. If we've got nothing by then, chances are the movie and potentially the sets will be delayed.

If all the movie sets do get pushed back we could see everything other than the D2C, Disney+ sets and the comic book inspired sets getting pushed back.

I hope the D2C blows us away to compensate

I honestly doubt that, especially as that has been ''rumored'' for months now. I wouldn't be surprised if they delay it again but I'm confident they'll release it as currently planned, most likely as a dual-released film.

they most likely will delay it. Kevin Fiege himself recently said he wasn't confident in the MCU release window for all their movies this year. People don't take covid seriously enough

any given thing being delayed, be it lego set or movie, is just a normal slice of life now.

we should prepare to be disappointed, this way IF the lego sets associated with the movies do come out on time we will all be pleasantly surprised and delighted.

(yes I know the black widow set is out)

Does LEGO keep a store of backup set ideas or something to run in case too many sets need to be delayed?

You can't be more wrong here. Sony movies never got Lego sets and most likely never will, as Sony doesn't own merchandise rights to marvel characters they use, Disney does. They can make movies with them but not toys. 18+ sets can be anything, maybe new idea like helmets or mosaic, but definitely not Sony movies.

With rumoured new Marvel Studios / Sony deal, I believe it might be possible that they agreed to make a Lego set based on it (not very likely tho).
